Alkaline Recipe: Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Soup

Serves 4

Ingredients:

One quart vegetable broth – we like Trader Joes Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth (or try making your own using equal parts freshly juiced celery, carrot, tomato, and 9.5 Chanson alkaline ionized water)
One diced white onion
Three chopped carrots
Three chopped celery sticks
Handful green beans
Four cubed red potatoes (optional)
Handful fresh baby spinach leaves (optional)
Cayenne pepper, dried basil, sea salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

Soak all veggies in 8.0-8.5 pH Chanson alkaline ionized water for ten minutes. Bring all ingredients except spinach and spices to a boil in a large covered pot, and then let simmer for approximately 40 minutes or until veggies soften, stirring occasionally. Add spinach and spices a minute or two before removing from heat. Stir and serve.

Alkaline Recipe: Iced Coffee

Coffee beans are considered acidic, however preparing them with alkaline ionized water can help offset the acidity. Alkaline ionized water also helps pull out the flavor of coffee more effectively, resulting in a rounder, bolder flavor. You will find that you don’t need to use as many coffee beans or grounds when brewing with alkaline ionized water because of this. Amazingly, you do not even need to heat the water in order to brew it as alkaline ionized water is able to penetrate the beans/grounds deeper than regular water due to its microclustered size.

Iced Coffee Recipe

Serves 1

Ingredients:
1 cup coffee made with alkaline ionized water
1/4 cup unsweetened soy or coconut milk
1/2 cup ice cubes (preferably made with alkaline ionized water)
Light agave nectar to taste

Directions: Brew your favorite coffee with alkaline ionized water. Pour coffee over ice, add soy or coconut milk and agave nectar and stir in large glass. This tastes just as good hot if you omit the ice. Enjoy!

Ways to Jazz up the Flavor of Water

We at Chanson Water love the taste of alkaline pH 9.5 water produced by our water ionizers. Taste may vary by source water, although one customer from Riverside County CA (whose tap water is ranked the #4 WORST in America) loves the taste of her ionized water!

However, we recognize that drinking nothing but water day in and day out can become a bit tedious at times. But instead of reaching for acidic drinks like coffee, soda, black tea, processed “fruit” juice, sports and energy drinks or alcohol, we offer the following (mostly alkaline) suggestions as additives to your ionized water:

  • Crushed fresh mint leaf
  • Lemon wedges
  • Lime wedges
  • Cucumber slices
  • Splash of coconut water
  • Slice of ginger
  • Green tea (sweeten with Stevia)
  • Cinnamon essential oil
  • Grapefruit juice or sweet grapefruit essential oil
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh lemongrass
  • Lavender
  • Rose petals
  • Coconut water ice cubes
  • Flavored Stevia drops (we like the Sweet Leaf brand)
  • True Lemon, True Lime, True Grapefruit and/or True Orange crystallized substitue

The following are not alkaline additives but should be fine for an occasional treat:

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi slices
  • Orange slices
  • Raspberries
  • Fresh pineapple chunks

And here are some combinations to try:

  • Ginger, grapefruit
  • Cucumber, strawberries, lavender, lemon
  • Lime juice, lemon juice, raspberries, mint leaves
  • Rose petals, fresh lemon thyme, lemon juice
  • Fresh lemongrass, fresh Thai basil
  • Lemon, ginger, cinnamon
  • Lime, cucumber, fresh thyme leaves
  • Strawberry, kiwi
  • Lavender mint

We hope you find this helpful and inspiring. Feel free to experiment and comment with your favorites or your own ideas! Visit www.chansonwater.com for more information on alkaline ionized water.

Our Avocado Tofu Breakfast Burrito is a great, easy and filling alternative to a traditional egg and cheese breakfast burrito and is not limited to just mornings!

Kids love it too, and this recipe also doubles as good mock scrambled eggs if you omit the tortilla. Try it and let us know what you think!

2 burrito-sized tortillas (sprouted or wheat are obviously the most nutritious but harder to find in the burrito size)

1/8 Diced white onion
1/4 Diced green bell pepper

2 TBS. olive oil
Dried oregano, to taste
Onion powder, to taste
